PSU students volunteer at youth center



PLYMOUTH — Mid-December is usually when college students are hard at work studying for exams and preparing for winter break, but a group of Plymouth State University marketing majors volunteered their time December 10 to decorate gingerbread houses with a group of Plymouth-area children.

More than a dozen members of the student organization Marketing Association of Plymouth State (MAPS) volunteered for the gingerbread project at the Pemi Youth Center, an after-school destination serving youth ages 10-17 of Plymouth and surrounding communities.

"Thanks to MAPS, youth participants enjoyed a magical afternoon decorating gingerbread houses," said Jessica Dutille '03, '04G, the Center's Executive Director. "We are sincerely grateful for all the incredible support that MAPS extends to the Pemi Youth Center."

"The simple goal behind something like this is to make the kids happy, it's all about them," noted Justin Hurd, MAPS Chapter Co-President. "We love performing community service, it's something that is built into the MAPS culture and we consider it a vital and rewarding aspect of chapter operations. We wanted to do more at the center and the idea to do gingerbread houses just popped up as something we thought would be a fun and interactive activity for the kids."

"We value service because it's embedded into the core of our organization's existence," said Jim Hundrieser '90G, PSU's Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. "To serve with distinction is a Plymouth State hallmark. Each year our students give more and more, enhancing our community and serving those in need. This project at the Pemi Youth Center is just one of many examples where PSU students make a meaningful difference to our greater community."

MAPS is PSU's student chapter of the American Marketing Association. The organization serves the campus and local community through fundraising and community service projects that also provide student members with real-world marketing, management, financial, and advertising experiences.

125 years of Meredith Library minutes online

MEREDITH — The Trustees of the Meredith Public Library are pleased to announce that they have placed all of their available meeting minutes online. Minutes date back to 1889 and include discussions on topics such as one from 1909 when the trustees voted not to allow the custodian to shoot at the doves roosting in the building, a decision in 1915 not to allow the State Papers collection to leave the library (which was a good one because one hundred years later we still have them,) and the decision in 1927 to remove the brick sidewalk that matched the library and replace it with concrete as was being done in the rest of the Town.

Reading the minutes is like taking a stroll through library and the town history. The historic minutes were transcribed from fading hand-written notebooks by two very diligent Friends of the Library volunteers, Anne Whiting and June Noreen. Years of work behind the scenes have left us all with the ability to enjoy reading them easily and to search them electronically. Thank you so much to these hard-working women.

The minutes can be accessed from the library's website www.meredithlibrary.org. Mouse over "About Us", click on Trustees and access the historic minutes on the bottom left-side of the screen.
